Rules and laws are usually in place for a reason, but doesn’t the saying go “Rules Were Made To Be Broken”? These AskReddit users sure think so.
Here is a list of 25 people who say “Eff You” to what is socially expected of them and find their own little ways of rebelling against the man…or that jackass who is always double parked.
“Each month when I pay the Cox cable bill, I write “Cocks” instead of “Cox” on the check. It has never been returned and I’ve been doing it for ten years.”
“I do print design, and sometimes when my boss asks me to move something just a little bit to the left and I feel like they’re making changes just for the sake of making changes, I don’t move it at all. They always accept these “changes.””
#3. Fancy Slippers
“My work requires dress shoes to be worn at all times. I bought black slippers that I wear around the office and claim they’re suede, and management and coworkers believe it.”
#4. It’s Like Vacation Every Day!
“I taught in a public high school. My principal forbid the wearing of jeans. I started wearing Aloha shirts. When I realized how much it pissed him off I amassed a collection of more than 50 of them by making frequent purchases at local thrift stores. I wore them every single day other than school picture day when I wore a tuxedo complete with a tie and cummerbund fashioned out of…aloha print cloth!”
#5. Road Warrior
“I follow the traffic rules, wait at red lights, use indicators for switching lanes, follow lanes, and refrain from honking. I live in India.”
#6. Silent Protest
“I was at an awards presentation and a person that I don’t like won an award. I didn’t applaud. I’m sure someone noticed my silent protest.”
#7. Free Hugs
“We had an acting manager attempt to make it a rule that people couldn’t hug each other at work. He felt it was unprofessional. This resulted in everyone hugging everyone for everything. As a form of greeting, farewell, good job, ‘let’s have a coffee’, etc. Turns out, he was the only one that no one ever wanted to hug.”
“I’m a large muscular brown man. When I see some asshole taking up waaaaay too much room on the subway, I sit down right next to them. RIGHT next to them.”
#9. Bed Bugs
“My work truck is infested with bed bugs. My boss refuses to treat it because he thinks that it’s coming from the patients I transport. So, whenever I find a bed bug, I save it live in a jar and release it into his office. When his office is infested, he’ll do something about it.”
